Expect to see more tourists around town this summer as researchers at Michigan State University are projecting the first tourism boom in four years.
Northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula should see the greatest increase, but the entire state should experience at least a portion of the growth. The findings are part of the MSU Tourism Center which will be presented at a conference next week.
The growth is still below average, but the entire state should see a two to three percent jump over last year if the weather holds up. MSU Tourism Center Director Don Holecek says weather pretty much trumps all other variables including gasoline prices.
